Nick Sacco, New Jersey Mayor, Reps North Bergen in Budget Political Ad

"The streets are clean and the parks are beautiful," says a citizen in a thrilling last-minute political ad for Nick Sacco of North Bergen, New Jersey, the mayor (and state senator!) aiming for reelection tomorrow. But the spot's real star is Tyler "TyAlaxandar" Griffin, a young rapper whose infectious "I Be From North Bergen Son," is interspersed throughout. After the jump, the full song, double-time flow and all, set to a photo montage from North Bergen High School because why not -- we don't


hate New Jersey.
